Upholstery Cleaning Vs Replacement: Making The Right Choice

Do you have couches, chairs or ottomans that look a little worse for wear? If so, it might be time for an upgrade. In this blog, we will highlight factors to consider when deciding between replacement or upholstery cleaning for your Newcastle home or business.

Cost Comparison

One of the first considerations is cost. Generally, having your upholstery cleaned is a more budget-friendly option compared to replacement. Professional cleaning services can refresh your upholstery at a fraction of the cost of buying new furniture. Also, regular cleaning will extend the lifespan of your upholstery, saving you money in the long run.

Environmental Impact

Having your upholstery cleaned regularly (recommend cleaning at least once a year) will have a much lower environmental impact than a replacement. New materials and the energy required to manufacture new products will not be needed.

Discarding your furniture will leave you deciding what to do with your old couch or chairs. If possible, avoid adding to landfill waste unnecessarily, thereby lessening your carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future.

How To Know When Replacement Is Necessary

While cleaning can work wonders, there will come a time when replacement is the better option. If your upholstery has a lot of damage, like rips and tears, stubborn stains, or even structural issues, replacement might be the most practical and safest option.

And as you have had your sofa or chair for so long, it might now be outdated, giving you the opportunity to choose a new modern style to suit your home or office better.

However, if you think there is still some life in that older furniture item, it is time to call in the professionals for a deep cleaning that will include microbial disinfectants and enzyme-based cleaners that will loosen and break down all the embedded dirt, grime and germs. This will give your furniture the best chance of being restored to its former glory.
